bored to death

I just found this site today. I think this is awesome. I'm only 11 days post op. I am a very active person usually, and was looking forward to the six weeks of doing nothing, but now I find that I am bored out of my mind. I am doing well with stairs and dong well with certain small chores around the house. My family has done well with everything. My husband has been a saint in helping me, but at the same time I am wanting to get back to normal. I am not a soap opera watching girl and found that is all I do on tv now during the day when everyone is gone. I just want to get back to normal but dont' want to hurt myself more. Any advice on how to get myself to settle down before I lose my mind during the day?

Here is a link to some good do's and don't's for while you are bored.

It's hard, but this is your one chance to heal correctly, without any problems caused by over-doing it. Just take it one day at a time.

When you get that restless take a walk but remember you have to come back as far as you go so don't over do it. Get your husband to bring you all the loose pictures laying around and organize them. Write a letter to someone you have been meaning to catch up with for years and have just never found the time. Order a book from the internet on a subject you have been curious about but have been to occupied or maybe affraid to look into. Start your family tree. Take up a craft project like cross stitch or latch hook. There really is a lot to do and if you get your brain moving you won't feel like you are losing brain cells watching too much tv. Just always remember to listen to your body and not over do it.

OMG -- I was the EXTREMELY energetic, bouncing off the walls girl, doing everything. Now I sit around and CROCHET!!! Me. Crocheting. It's freaking hysterical.

Thank God for those electric shopping carts, too. It helps me get out of the house with my husband for awhile. I walk as long as I can, then he goes and gets me a cart. It's not quite so depressing that way.

I will be heading back to work Dec 7. I also work in retail which means I'll be going hog wild when I get back to work. So, right now I am also addressing Christmas cards and working on the family Christmas letter. Compiling gift lists and watching QVC too.

I'm learning how to convert my CD's to MP3 format on my computer. I have a billion of those to do. I am looking at the class schedule at the local JoAnn fabrics to see any upcoming classes I might take when I am up to it.

Those are just a few of my ideas. I hope they help. Anybody else got any good ideas. I'm bored too.

I have been cross stitching like crazy, reading everything I can get my hands on, sitting outside and watching all my neighbors (feeling kind of like Gladys Cravitz!), selling everything on eBay I can get my hands on, and making out huge to do lists for my husband And I am spending a lot of time on the computer.....

stuff to do


I had my TAH on October 14th, so I'm about 11 days post-op too. I feel SOOO much better than a week ago, don't you? Here are some things that I do to refrain from being bored:

I read books that I got from the library. Maybe someone could take you there.

I walk in circles around my house.

I talk on the phone to friends and family.

I work on volunteer projects on the computer.

I drink lots of water.

I look through the fridge and pantry for healthy food.

I go outside and enjoy the fall weather.

I enjoy the solitude.

I spend lots of time getting support on this website.

I write my feelings down.

Good luck to you!

Gosh, I'm not bored yet. I'm looking forward to that. I still tire easily and must entertain Mr. Foley. He needs so much attention.

Everytime I complain about how bored I am I remember that before I know it I will be back at work and on the merry-go-round again. That stops me in my tracks!

I wish I had a chance to be bored but that has and will never be (atleast not for a lot of years) a problem for me. My problem is not getting enough rest. LOL
